Architect Designed Residence and Private Studio & Garage in a Boutique Condominium

Expansive and thoughtfully designed duplex loft ideal for those, who wish to live in a well appointed home as well as showcase their fine art. The double height, 22-feet high soaring ceilings in the living room with two rows of uninterrupted windows, reflective surfaces that further draw in light thru out the loft are the central core of this residence. Beyond the living room is a cook's kitchen with state of the art Miele appliances & walnut countertops, hidden pantry/prep kitchen for entertaining, large walk-in closet at the entry hall, children’s hidden play space, full bath and bedroom on the main floor. Custom staircase with aluminum rails bring you up to the second floor of the residence, where you will find a library/media room, full bathroom, master bedroom with en suite walk-in closet with custom millwork and a separate, fully operational, proper laundry room.

A combination of Douglas Fir Wood beams (used in the original construction were re-milled and re-purposed for the design of the new mezzanine deck, which houses the library/media room, steps and benches), original steel and concrete with new walnut, glass and added structural steel introduced behind the walls bond old & new. A two-story, custom library shelving system made of walnut, glass and aluminum acts as connective tissue between the living room and the mezzanine level's library and media room. The space's verticality is further emphasized by an installation of Ingo Maurer “Johnny B. Good Pendant Lights” which drop down a full story to offer intimate illumination to the living room. Central air conditioning, fin tube heating, recessed speakers throughout, multi-zone AV system, with in-wall keypad controls, security/alarm system, in-wall wood blocking for art hanging, blackout shades with motorized control for double height living area and more enable the space for comfortable living.

16 Desbrosses, 2S has two entrances, one with the elevator and the other near private, townhouse style walk-up with original terrazzo flooring. The home comes with a large, private storage room complete with wall to wall, floor to ceiling shelving, bike hanging racks and two Avanti wine chillers, each with 166 bottle capacity.

The converted loading dock is currently used as a 1294 square foot light-filled photography studio, garage & bathroom. With an address of 121 Watts Street, this studio possesses its own "grandfathered" curb cut. Designed by award winning firm, Architecture Research Office, this versatile studio space boasts sophisticated finishes, pristine poured concrete floors and 16 foot ceiling heights. Accessible from both Desbrosses Street and Watts Street, this space features a private, automated, 13-foot-high, glass garage door which faces North onto Watts Street. With clear glass construction on upper panes and sandblasted glass on lower panes (to afford privacy), the garage door doubles as a wall of light for the interior space.

The property comes complete with a powerful two-zone HVAC system, radiators & forced air heating, multi-zone AV system with in-ceiling speakers throughout, alarm system with motion detectors and glass break sensors. There is also 50-running-feet of worktop, constructed with 2.5" thick Douglas Fir planks removed from loft 2S, re-milled & splined. There is additional floor-to-ceiling custom maple cabinetry in the large bathroom as well as duravit & Koehler finishes.

This boutique condominium is located on a cobblestone street in west Tribeca with easy access out of town and currently zoned for PS234.
